R. B. Kitaj “Los Angeles No. 9”, 1996-2002.
Telling of devotion and togetherness, the pictures in Kitaj’s Los Angeles Series express his longing for his dead wife, Sandra Fisher. While most of the pictures in the series portray in mystical compositions, here they are sitting together in their car, against the background of an excerpt from a modernist art magazine.
R. B. Kitaj Obsessions exhibition, Jewish Museum, London.
I feel that I shouldn’t be concentrating on the list of names in the magazine.
